DR. SEUSS' THE LORAX is an animated film about a young boy called Ted who embarks on a mission to undo a disaster that has caused the world's trees to be destroyed. The film was classified 'U' and contains no material likely to offend or harm.

There are a few moments of very mild threat, such as when a character known as 'The Once-ler' careers down some water rapids, falls off the edge of a waterfall onto some grass and then passes out temporarily. There is also a mildly unsettling dream sequence in which the same character is seen chopping down trees with an automated axe in a somewhat evil manner. The BBFC's Guidelines at 'U' state 'Scary sequences should be mild, brief and unlikely to cause undue anxiety to young children. The outcome should be reassuring'. The infrequent moments of action and threat are unlikely to trouble young children, particularly given the film's comic, feel-good style and the strong positive messages about caring for the planet and protecting trees.
